A Gift From Gracie

Have you all met Gracie of One Saylor's Log?  Well if you haven't you better head right on over there and introduce yourself, because you are in for a real treat. Gracie is one of the kindest souls you will find in the whole world.  She takes so much time to get to know you and to give you words of encouragement, and love, whenever she can.  I just adore her and I know you will too.  So sweet Gracie was having a giveaway, I was so excited because to have anything Gracie had made would be so special.  I was so shocked to hear that my name had been picked!!!!!  I was only supposed to get a very special Oregon mug and beautiful dish cloth, but Gracie being so lovely, included many other special items.  Want to have a peek?

 Look at this beautiful mug, such a gorgeous color.  It had several packets of my favorite tea, Earl Grey, yum!
 This amazing yarn Gracie skirted, washed, dried, combed and spun all by herself.  You know I LOVE yarn, but to think I have such beautiful yarn made by someone so special, just makes me want to stand up and shout for Joy!
 Here is the beautiful purple dishcloth, sorry for the wonky picture I did not notice I did not have it laid out as nicely as it deserved.  Gracie, I just may have to keep this someplace very special, as it is way too nice for my dirty dishes.
 And look what else was in the box, Cascade Pima Tencel yarn in these stunning colors.  Gracie said she put them in to cushion the mug, well that certainly works for me.  I sense some beautiful crochet blue and pink flowers with green leaves in my future.
 And this perfect tea towel of the State of Oregon.  Now I can follow Gracie, and my friend Teresa, as
they travel around their beautiful state, taking amazing pictures of the glorious countryside and sharing them with all of us.
Gracie had three notes in my box.
One held these beautiful blue beads from the Lewis and Clark Fort State Park.
Another held this charming, friendship bracelet that Gracie made just for me!  Am I not the luckiest gal?  Gracie you have just overwhelmed me with your generosity.  And let me tell all of you, Gracie isn't just generous with the gifts she gives, she is generous with the time she takes to reach out to her blogging friends and really connect.  For that I am eternally grateful.  I bet you know who will be mentioned in my gratitude journal today.

I hope you are all having a fantastic day.

And a side message to Angdimaggio, you asked about the blue/green monster.  He was made from Red Heart Boutique Treasure in the color Mosaic.  Hope this helps.
